FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Oak & Ash

Today’s font selection is called Oak & Ash, and was created by James Lafuente.  Oak & Ash is a hand drawn, all caps typeface with a handful of alternate characters & glyphs.  I can envision this font working beautifully for a fun rehearsal dinner BBQ invite or a birthday party for an adventurous little boy.

Like so many of the fonts I’ve featured in the past, Oak & Ash can be had for under $20, in fact – it’s only $12!  At that price you may want to pick up it’s sister (brother?) font Pearl District too!  Pearl District is a slightly condensed display face and I’m sure they would work beautifully together.

As you may have assumed I have a thing for fonts. They come in all shapes and sizes with elaborate swashes and elegant details. The right font can easily make or break a design. Every Friday, I’ll share some of my favorites and recent purchases here, hoping to inspire a typography addiction in everyone.

I try to keep my font sheet updated with recent purchases, but if you see a font you love on here and would like to incorporate it into your designs just let me know!

 

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Amour

In honor of tomorrow’s holiday, today’s chosen font is Amour!  Amour is a beautiful serif font created by Cultivated Mind.  Whenever I see it I am also reminded of Luella, another Cultivated Mind font, I think they could be sisters :)

Amour is a romantic hand drawn font with a slightly retro feeling.  The full family includes 2 fonts in 4 weights, with awesome extras likes coordinating frames and ornaments.

I’m not opposed to spending $6 on a beautiful letterpress Valentine’s Day card, (like this lovely one from Ink Meets Paper) but my Valentine does not appreciate such things and, beautiful hand-crafted card or not, it will be headed for the garbage about 30 seconds after he opens it.  He’s just not a card guy.  So, I’ve made my own for the past few years and share them with my darling readers with the hopes that *maybe* someone keeps theirs, or if not, at least you don’t feel guilty when it’s tossed in the trash since it’s FREE!

Here is this year’s card –

You can download the free printable, with (super easy) directions, HERE, no strings attached* :)  You can also grab last year’s free printable card here.

Enjoy!

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Minnow

This darling font, called Minnow, is my chosen pick for this week.  Created by Lianne of Baron Art Co. who happens to have a lovely FREE print available on her website right now if you sign up for her mailing list.  She also offers beautiful custom calligraphy services!

font-friday-minnow-1

From the author: “Minnow is a sweet and simple typeface with natural lines that have a pen and ink handlettered feel. The variation between thick and thin lines, plus the mix of serif and sans-serif elements makes this a playful and unpredictable typeface that can be used boldly on it’s own or paired beautifully with traditional serifs, scripts or modern and simple sans-serifs.”

Minnow is available at an introductory offer of only $19, with the option of buying an extended license for another $60 if you plan to use it for resale use.   I hope to see more fonts from Lianne in the future!

FONT FRIDAY

Featured Font : Smoothy

Smoothy, is this week’s chosen font.  Designed by Ian Barnard, it contains both a cursive script and a complementary sans-serif.  I foresee this font to be incredibly versatile, fitting in well on everything from baby shower invitations, to a rustic camp wedding suite, to a casual backyard BBQ invite.

From the author: “SMOOTHY is a two font family with a mono weight cursive script and a complementary subtly rounded sans-serif. Based on my most popular hand lettered style, it gives your work that stylish hand rendered look, with no effort. ”  Look at all the beautiful glyphs included below –
